On multiple occasions the defendant has made slanderous accusations towards the plaintiff with the intent to damage their political objectives.

The slanderous accusations for which the plaintiff has presented include accusations that the plaintiff "hate capitlzem", "Takes are work from amazon", "scams the consumer", and "sell [iron] for 5$ for 1".

Notice that the defendant has NOT signed the book and when I proposed the deal to the defendant they expressed that they had no intent to sign the book. This is perjury, which is illegal. https://forums.democracycraft.net/threads/perjury-act.862/. If the defendant does wish to accept this deal I am still willing to, we need to meet in game to each sign 2 copies of this document. Today, 9/26/20, and tomorrow, 9/27/20, I work and will only be available after 8pm EST (2AM in Sweden).

My sincere apologies for my recent absence.
To start, blockblowers, what part are you in this case? This has not been brought before the court. Beginning arguments can not begin until all parties are introduced.

Wonderful, now that this is out of the way. I would like some clarification. The plaintiff claims that the defendant has slandered him. What reason is there a contract?

Your honor, I drafted the contract displayed in an attempt to settle this matter out of court. The defendant declined to sign the contract. It is therefore not binding in any manner. I do believe the defendant's legal council made an honest mistake in believing I had successfully made a deal with the defendant and have no intentions to pursue perjury charges. The contract should be disregarded for the remainder of this trial.

This has been noted. Does the plaintiff have proof of a decline of sales, or real damage to a political campaign?

Your honor, such evidence would be irrelevant. Slander is a statement which intends to harm one's reputation, such a statement does not necessarily need to harm one's reputation. That being said, I narrowly lost the DRP nomination for President by a margin of 51.1% to 48.9%, which must in part be due to the defendant's constant false allegations about my policy and my business. The defendant's business is a direct competitor to my own business, these false allegations against my business benefited his own business therefore harming my own.

I'd like to note that should the court find that the defendant did in fact commit slander but the total claim for $7,000 is excessive, it is fully within the Court's power to demand partial compensation. Full text of the Slander Act (it's a clickable link, new forums text decoration is broken smh): https://democracycraft.net/threads/slander-act.404/

Attached is a screenshot from the DRP discord's announcement channel of the Primary election's results. (this channel is public)

Verdict

It is recognized by the court that attempt of slander was made by the defendant. However, due to insufficient evidence of real harm done to the reputation of the plaintiff. It would not be an appropriate action of this court to order restitution. Therefore this case is hereby dismissed.

As outlined in the Court Process lack of evidence is not a valid reason for dismissal...
